Windows Mobile development in VS2010

With the release yesterday of Windows Phone (press release , blog post , training , launch site) and with the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2010 Beta2, we are starting to see the question again: "where is the smart device development support in Visual Studio 2010?".

This question was asked a lot during the VS2010 Beta1 timeframe and the answer remains the same: Mobile Development Tools are now aligned to the mobile platform releases and are hence decoupled from Visual Studio releases, so I personally guess we should see tool support in VS2010 when a new mobile platform is released. For now, stick with VS2008 for device development needs (official statement) and keep an eye on the Windows Mobile Development Center.
